I really searched before asking!!! Is there a way to get to the desktop when I click on it instead of getting a menu pop up?

 

Thanks,

 

Michel

You can go here --

  Main Menu --> Settings --> All --> Input --> Mouse Bindings

 

and then click on "Left Button" and select the "Show The Desktop" on the right side. That should do the trick. But I would make sure 'Zone' is selected and NOT 'Any', or it may render your left click button virtually worthless for any selections.


Nothing is as simple as it seems at first, or as hopeless as it seems in the middle, or as finished as it seems in the end.

I have already done that. I always like to emulate Mac OSX  :) but I just wanted a "normal" interaction with the desktop. No issue really.

This isn't exactly the opposite of sef's suggestion. I have used my laptop and have also used the MacBook Pro that we have at the public library. What would you define as "normal" interaction, as I am so used to the e17 desktop that everything else is just plain insipid, or just plain wrong. But why not leave things the way they are, with the slightest tweak imaginable. Go to mouse bindings for left button, or right button. Under zone pick None. Now I should warn you about adverse effects, but I haven't tried this myself.

 

I normally just reconfigure the right mouse button out-of-the-box, to do either favorites or something else, because the left mouse does a lot as is, and I never found any use for the start module or start button, and unload that module, too. Isn't the one mouse button a Mac thing?

 

So, why not try it on the bodhi live USB, if you still have it.

I already have configured the top left edge of the screen to show the desktop
